ASHGABAT, September 17. /TASS/. Speaker of the Russian parliament’s upper house Valentina Matviyenko slammed the flawed position of 17 countries’ anti-doping authorities, calling for Russia to be banned from the Olympic Games in South Korea’s PyeongChang in 2018.

"Look at the list of those countries - those are our traditional ‘friends’, who are trying to use any event to build up Russophobia, to intensify the confrontation," she told reporters.

"These countries, which allow such statements, are inept, short-sighted countries," she stressed.
